Episode 19: Thicc Man

We're back everybody! (Congratulations to Troy for coming up with the episode name this week!) This episode has been in the works since the beginning of the project, and here we are finally doing it! Take a listen as we cover the history of Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory and one of their many notable creations; the first crash test dummy. Then we drink Trial By Wombat - a hazy IPA by Thin Man Brewery. How does the history and the beer crossover? Have a listen to find out!

This week we're celebrating Buffalo's music scene to get in the spirit of Music is Art, the nonprofit started by a member of one famous Buffalo-based band. When you think of music and entertainment in Buffalo, you can't not think about the Theatre District, or its centerpiece: Shea's Performing Arts Center. Shea was a super busy guy who seriously LOVED entertainment. If you're not driving, take a sip for every theatre of his that Haley mentions in this episode.


TL;DL: Everything burns down *fire emoji*. Also we don't know how to pronounce vaudeville.

It's our thirtieth episode! You know what they say: 30 is the new 20! So for this, our thirtieth episode, we've decided to make our own little "clip-isode" where we go over our last 29 episodes (and the minisodes) and bring up some stuff that's come up since the episode has come out. Haley does do a classic deep-dive into something historic (should we tell you what it is?) Alright fine, it's the Buffalo Central Terminal! We just won't tell you where it comes in. HA!

This episode's for anyone going back to school this week coming up: this is our University at Buffalo episode! (Probably one of many, because there's a ton of history behind the school.) Consider this our most general UB episode, because Haley goes over the founding of the school and how the two main campuses got their start. Troy does a deep-dive on Capen Hall and Haley talks about her UB experience back in good ol' 2014, for which we have a moment of silence for Yik Yak.

This episode is a little bit sloppier than our usual product--we blame recording at 10 pm and pre-gaming at New York Beer Project. Anyway, this is our official Frederick Law Olmsted episode! Olmsted played a huge role in making Buffalo a one-of-a-kind city; what he would call "the Best Planned City in the World." Haley discusses the three parks he designed for Buffalo and the vision he had for each of them--and the effect that the Buffalo expressway system has had on each of them. (You'll find out here that we have about as much passion about buildings as we do about parks.)

You didn't think we forgot about you, did you? We're a day late on our episode drop but we're sure it's worth it!


This week, Lewiston, NY is the focal point of the show! Along with its rich history and beautiful views, Lewiston is now home to a great place to drink freshly brewed beers! We got our hands on a Bourbon Barrel-Aged Quadrupel (thanks to our Patron Billy Jean) by Brickyard Brewing Company!


Expect our usual Drinking Points chatter: old buildings, influential individuals, and great beer. We give a little more information on what's behind the barrel aging process and we share every detail on our tasting sheet for this one. Cheers!

Here's a fun drinking game: take a drink every time the word "right" or "Wright" is said in this episode. (Actually, don't. That's not drinking responsibly.)


Well, if you know us, I'm sure you know by now this is our Frank Lloyd Wright episode! (Maybe the first of several, who knows.) In this episode we discuss one of Wright's most well-known designs, made for the man he called his best friend: Darwin D. Martin. In addition we talk about a few other Wright works in Buffalo, and we find out that Haley probably cares more about old buildings than people.


And an added bonus: we start a new Untappd segment, which has yet to be named, starring the beer of the episode; Frank by Community Beer Works!

In this episode, Troy takes the reins while Haley takes an accidental vacation day (don't worry, she's still here.) While Haley was working, Troy took a trip to Buffalo's Pierce Arrow Museum, where he learned a bunch about old cars and BIKES! And this museum just so happens to be down the street from Buffalo's first brewery since Iroquois closed in the 70s, Flying Bison Brewing Company! Thanks for listening!
